New Death Metal Band, Mohler

There’s a new brutal slamming death metal band in the works, spearheaded by Grant Mohler (also of Crushing the Deceiver). The studio-only project will be called simply Mohler, and will not interfere with Grant’s other band, as there will be no touring.… Continued →

Song of the Day: Crimson Thorn - Thy Neighbor

Lovers of traditional, old school death metal will know there is a significant lack of it coming from bands with a Christian worldview. The reasons for this are complex, and we won’t get into them here, except to say that it probably has something to do with the lyrical themes that often accompany their secular counterparts: death, gore, and the occult all being regular topics.… Continued →

REVIEW : The Beckoning - The Desolation of War

Canadian progressive death metallers The Beckoning have been making noise since 2010.  This release combines two earlier demos—Desolate (2014) and War (2012) into one remastered full-length.  Truly progressive, this 4-song clocks in at over 29 minutes, making it either a very long EP, or a full-length with only 4 songs, depending on one’s perspective.… Continued →
